Makaha Morishita

Makaha Morishita loves sport, so much so that she used to travel 2 hours each way to attend a Japanese school that had a greater selection of opportunities for female students.  

She always knew that she would leave Japan to study abroad – it just took a while for her to find out that it would be to New Zealand.  The catalyst came when an ex-pat Kiwi teacher started teaching English and Rugby at her school, and they got talking about New Zealand.   He arranged an exchange to Bethlehem College in Tauranga, followed by a term at an English Language school in Auckland.   

Within the year she had enrolled at St Peter’s as a Year 10 Boarder.  She loves the variety of opportunities available to her here.  Already she has explored Lacrosse, Badminton, Touch Rugby, Speed Skating, Dance and Piano.  The support of the St Peter’s staff has made the transition simple for her – initially being afraid of leaving home, she finds the day to day St Peter’s life suits her well and she is so grateful that everything is so close, after her long commute in Japan.
